Servings: 3 dozen mushrooms
Prep Time: 23 min
Cook Time: 30 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

3 (8-ounce) packages fresh baby bella mushrooms, wiped clean
2 tablespoons butter
1 (5-ounce) package prosciutto, chopped
1/4 cup minced fresh chives
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 tablespoon lemon zest
1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper





Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Remove the stems from the mushrooms. Finely chop enough mushroom stems to equal 1/3 cup. Discard the remaining mushroom stems.

In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the prosciutto, chives, and chopped mushroom stems. Cook, stirring frequently, until the prosciutto is crisp and the stems are tender, about 6 minutes. Reduce the heat to low. Add the cream cheese, mustard, lemon zest, tarragon, and pepper, stirring until the mixture is combined. Remove from the heat.

Spoon the cream cheese mixture evenly into the mushroom caps; place on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake 20 minutes. Serve immediately.

Cook’s Note: Mushrooms can be stuffed 2 days ahead. Cover and refrigerate.

I just love your show! I try and make most of your recipes anything but the baking I'm not good at that at all. I have a large family and we have most of our big meals here since I'm the only one in the family that loves to cook. I hope that some day I may get lucky enough to come down to the Lady and Sons and hope I'd get to meet you.
